GBTQ Monthly Open Circle
August 12, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm CDT
An gathering every month that begins at 7:30 pm on day Second of the month, repeating until December 9, 2020
The purpose of the ManKind Project is to create a safer world through the development of “better” men. We train and support men in circles to create a world where men act on their individual and shared responsibility to foster a brighter future for humanity. We initiate and support men on a path of emotional maturity, spiritual awareness, and deepening community.
As members of the GBTQ community, we face the added challenge and gift of belonging to a minority group. We recognize our collective experiences of feeling unwelcome in many communities and spaces. Therefore, out of necessity, we band together to create and celebrate in our own safe-spaces. Through this spirit, we welcome all who seek to share this connection.
Open Circles are regularly scheduled gatherings that help introduce men to the experience of sitting in a ManKind Project Circle with other men. This provides an opportunity for men to practice authentic sharing, reflection, and deeper connection with one another in an open, authentic, and supportive setting.
What We Practice in our Circles:
Emotional Authenticity – Because we believe in honesty and wholeness, we practice emotional intelligence and self-awareness.
Personal Responsibility – Because we value integrity and accountability, we take 100% responsibility for our feelings. We own the impacts – positive and negative –intended and unintended – of our choices and actions.
Leadership Mastery – Because we believe that role models change lives, we practice highly principled personal, interpersonal, and group leadership.
Empowered Mission – Because we value generosity, service, and connection to spirit, we explore and live from our deepest purpose.
Supportive Community – Because we care for ourselves and the generations to come, we create a place for men from all walks of life to learn and teach in a safe, respectful, challenging, and inclusive peer-network.
